's pretty exciting. >> it's a change of the times. it's one to follow. sarah jaffe, thank you for joining us tonight. >>> that's "the ed show" on this friday night. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed. have a great weekend, my friend. >> i will. you too. thank you. >> thanks for being with us on this fine friday night. do you remember the color-coded alert system we used to have? remember that? tom ridge announced the exist tense of our national color-coded be afraid alert chart about a decade ago. we could tell at a glance how alert we were supposed to feel. and if you didn't feel like glancing at the be alert chart, at least a at the airport they would read periodic recorded statements over the intercom telling you out loud that today's threat level was orange. the threat level was always orange at the airport no matter what else was going on in the country. we don't do that anymore. we don't do that. we got rid of the chart thing last year and nobody complained. we also no longer have this. this is the google street view of one of the secre
to be the highest unemployment in history for two terms it is not careful. he will take us back into recession. if he wants serious negotiations that will sit down and come to some kind of an agreement. we have been down this road before where republicans of given on the taxes. was in the white house with reagan. they promised dollars in cuts. they didn't give us anything. bush went through the same drill when he broke his tax pledge, busch sr. we have had this history before. basically, tell us what you're going to do. there will be a stimulus by fixing the northeast from the storm. add another 50 billion out there on top of the package. and then the audacity of saying, i'm going to raise the debt ceiling whenever i want to. give me permission to do that. it's absolutely absurd. lou: the presidents reached exceeding his grasp? >> we will see. he clearly thinks that he is in a strong position or you would not be trying this. i think he thinks that the optics work for him. >> but it was ms. mccall's idea in 2011 to give the president the power to raise the debt ceiling by himself. this was not
wants more spending and he's not giving us any entitlement savings and on top of that, like you mentioned, he has no limit onis authority. so he's spending just as he has over the past four years into oblivion. gerri: so there is no debt ceiling. he has a checkbook, he can use it anyway that he wants to. that is shocking and astonishing to many folks. there is also this. the president has talked over and over again about a balanced approach. everybody has to give up something. everybody gets a little something. so he proposes $1.6 in tax hikes. only 400 billion in cuts. in what way is this balance? >> i think this has been a mistake the republicans have made. i do not believe that we have a revenue problem. in the long run, we have a spending problem and it is mostly an entitlement problem. i think it was a mistake for speaker boehner and others for revenue on the table to begin with. that being said, they all agree in a balanced approach. what the president has put forward, it does not even adess the problems. if you don't start negotiations talk about medicare, they simply are
and they will play for us this morning. we begin this morning with the so-called fiscal cliff one from today unless washington gets its act together 90% of americans will see their taxes rise as a series of tax increase and spending cuts take effect. yet negotiations between the white house and congressional republicans are at a standstill. anna werner is in our washington bureau. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. unless congress comes to an agreement on the fiscal cliff it would mean a tax hike plus some $65 billion would be cut from the pentagon and other government agencies. both sides are hoping for a compromise. but so far all there's been is debate. >> i've been keeping my own naughty and nice list for washington. >> reporter: president obama took his fight to the public while visiting a toy company in pennsylvania where he warned republicans not to play scrooge. >> it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's acceptable for you for a handful of republicans to hold middle class tax cuts held hostage. >> reporter: the white house proposal includes $4 trill
and ludicrous this is. fourth, republicans need to use the opportunity to pass their own agenda they need to show they are not obstructionists they themselves have a positive, forward-looking agenda they are proud of, eager to take to the country. republicans need to make the case morning, noon and night, that it is obama who seems absolutely determined, for political reasons, to take the country over the fiscal cliff. our first guest is author of victory at yorktown live in virginia as part of his american legacy tour, former presidential candidate, newt gingrich. welcome back. >> good to be with us. interesting times. sean you have a smile on your face. >> sure. >> sean: a lot of our tpraepbs are not happy about in. >> un reasons i write historical fiction is to remind people that sometimes freedom is difficult, crossing the delaware christmas night in a snow storm was difficult. marching nine miles with a third of the army wearing burlap bags because they had no boots leading a trail of blood, difficult. where are we today? you have a president who believes that he can bully and out-ma
to work. take a listen. >> it allows us not just to work within our own pg and e staff, but with first responders and have them on site working shoulder to shoulder. >> first responders on stand-by not just in california, but also in states of nevada are where they're expected to declare a state of emergency, possibly sunday. so much rain is going to fall in the next 12 hours or so, that they've handed out sandbags in places like reno, for example, where they expect to see heavy rains. also the river in nevada, that expected to flood by at least four foot in part. the national weather center also putting out a fresh flood warning for the napa river. they're saying the areas of saint helena and napa city itself could see the level of water rise above the 16-foot safety mark, not entire leisure just where exactly it could burst its banks. but emergency crews on stand-by for that. of course, continued travel disruption. san francisco airport delays of up to 30 to 90 minutes. but after that heavy rain hits overnight and heavy winds as well, those delays could go on for a lot longer. major
